A number of the newly-reopened sectors in areas under general community quarantine (GCQ) were closed temporarily due to rising coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases.
The Department of Trade and Industry said driving schools, traditional cinemas, gaming arcades, museums, cultural centers, and limited social events in Department of Tourism-accredited establishments were suspended i until April 4.
“Due to rising cases, DTI also supports scaling back of some activities that were recently reopened or expanded,” Trade Secrretary Ramon Lopez said.
Lopez said the IATF is limiting the MICE (meetings, incentives, conference, and exhibitions) industry to 30 percent from 50-percent capacity.
Venue capacity of dine-in restaurants, cafés, and personal care services will be scaled back to 50 percent.
“Reminder also for the people to avoid crowding and crowded places.
Establishments (should) improve ventilation, open windows and doors, (and use) air purifiers,” he said.
